100 Dollar Dinner
March 25, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 9:30 pm $100
The 100 Dollar Dinner is quickly approaching, and the U of L Women’s Hockey Alumni Foundation is excited to bring Sheldon Kennedy to our community to spread his message on Saturday, March 25, 2017.
Sheldon Kennedy won a Memorial Cup, World Junior Gold Medal and skated for three teams in his eight-year NHL career. He is best known for his courageous decision to charge his Major Junior Hockey league coach with sexual assault for the abuse he suffered over a five year period while a teenager under the care of his coach. Through this disclosure, and the important work that Sheldon continues to do, he has become an inspiration to millions of abuse survivors around the world.
The goal of the U of L Women’s Hockey Alumni Foundation is to promote women in hockey, and to ensure those who have, and are benefitting from the University sports program, be more involved in the community. By ensuring that the current Pronghorn Women’s hockey team is supported by our community, we are helping to grow a strong and educated group of leaders. As these athletes graduate and move on in their lives, they are committed to give back to the very communities that have aided them in their growth.
“The Women’s Hockey program at the University of Lethbridge provides many female athletes the opportunity to compete at a higher level. We have a group of 120 strong women who have been a part of this program, and we want to continue to help the program thrive to ensure that these numbers continue to grow, “ said Sam Schneyder, President, U of L Women’s Hockey Alumni Foundation. “I would encourage everyone to consider joining us on March 25. Sheldon Kennedy’s message is one that is so important to anyone involved with youth. I look forward to sharing an exciting and fun evening in support of growing strong leaders for our community.”
